tv   On the Record With Greta Van Susteren  FOX News  January 20, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PST

4:00 pm
thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that's it for this "special report," fair, balanced and unafraid. "special report" online begins in seconds. here is greta. >> tonight, "on the record," donald trump is live and he is here, hot off the bombshell endorsement from alaska governor sarah palin in iowa is a palin endorsement enough to tip the-q scales on the stump? >> ladies and gentlemen, governor sarah palin. thank you. our best deserve a commander and chief who will let them do their job and go kick isis [bleep] >> i don't know if hillary is going to make it. she may not make it with the voters. she may not major it legally. do you notice how positive she is about the president? you know why because she wants to stay out of the
4:01 pm
clink, that's why. [ laughter ] >> sanders, you can imagine this guy is socialist/communist doing well. >> are you all ready to work to make america great again? [cheers and applause] >> he is a whack job. is he a wacko, he is beating hillary clinton. >> are you ready to elect someone with the willingness and ability to make that that i think that we need to change out that establishment and put you back in charge to take back ourd country? joining me live the g.o.p. frontrunner donald trump. hello, donald. >> hello, greta. >> donald, when governor palin said she is going to endorse you, what did she say in that conversation to you? >> well, she called and she was so nice, and i have been friends for a long time and we just had a great conversation. she said you really create a movement beyond just the campaign. and as an example today we had 15,000 people. we had to walk about 5,000.
4:02 pm
we couldn't get into this massive arena about 5,000. so i'm going to go back to oklahoma, which is an incredible place. we are going to go back. we had 15,000 people show up for this. it's been amazing and she was terrific today. >> she had to make a choice. she had two suiters pretty much, you and senator ted cruz. is your bromance with senator ted cruz now over? >> well, you know, i have been waiting for it. i'm beating him very badly in the polls. he has gone down quite a bit lately in the polls. i was waiting and i said when is he going to attack and i have attacked him very strongly and vociferously. i think we are doing very well and seems like we are doing very well. he is he having a hard time with the fact that he has gone down so much. >> in fact, here's what you said about him earlier today. here is some sound. >> with being a canadian citizen, he said oh, i didn't know that. how did he not know that. then he said with the loans,
4:03 pm
oh, i didn't know that smart guy. he doesn't know that? yeah. that's worse than hillary, when you think about it. >> is he, in your opinion, worse than hillary? if he were -- if it were a challenge between senator ted cruz and secretary hillary clinton in a general election who are you voting for? >> well, look, he was a canadian citizen until 14 or 15 months ago. he said he didn't know that he wasn't aware of that obviously heyv became aware. if you think of it, was a united states senator and is he a canadian citizen. and dual citizen. but a canadian citizen. this is like 14 to 15 months ago and he said he didn't know anything about it. nobody can believe that who would ever believe that. there are advantages to having a dual citizenship. then he said he didn't know anything about the fact that he was borrowing the money give me a break. he didn't put in his personal financial disclosure form which is a very important thing that he signs and personally
4:04 pm
guarantees that he didn't know that he had these loans or he certainly didn't disclose that he had these loans. how could he not disclose that he has the loans million dollars with goldman sachs and with siti. citi one came up later. he is honorable guy fighting the bank. he didn't want the voter to see that he is borrowing money, and personally guaranteeing it from banks. what he did is just absolutely, probably illegal but it is certainly wrong. >> last night governor palin said that you would end crony capitalism and that's one of the reasons why she is supporting you. yet, you support the ethanol mandates in iowa. how do you reconcile that? >> i do support it. i want to create fuel. anything we can do to do that we don't wanthbçú to get back in the arms of the cartel. we don't want to get back into the arms of opec, which is what happened. and we were there for years and years now for the first time in a long time, fuel prices are coming down.
4:05 pm
but it's an amazing industry!q in iowa i do support it very strockly. he is a incredible guy straight shooter. he would be the guy who if he didn't believe in it he would not support it. we need all the type of fuel we can. we don't want to have to be in a position to having to deal with the opec folks again where they were ripping us left and right. only china ripped us worse. 'believe me. they are making up for it big league right now. >> how important is the evangelical vote in iowa, do you think? and does governor palin, does she secure or help secure that vote for you? >> well, i think she does. i'm doing very well with the evangelicals, nationwide as you know i'm winning the evangelicals by a lot. and in iowa, i'm doing very well with theqzqxevangelicals. with the tea party, and sarah really is loved. i mean, at this event we had today, it was incredible in oklahoma, you ought to see, it was just an unbelievable
4:06 pm
event. and so far out in front, i mean, you know, when you think of it, we are so far away from the general election and from the big day and big vote. people have never seen anything like that before. "time" magazine, et cetera. they haven't seen crowds like this. this blows bernie sanders away. he is second but his crowds are tiny in comparison to the kinds of crowds i'm getting. people want to see america become great again. they are tired of having us country be ripped off constantly by everybody. everybody that does business with us. from iran to china to vietnam, to japan, they rip us off because we have people that don't know what they are doing. >> you suggested that former secretary of state hillary things about president obama to because she wants to stay out of the clink. do you want to elap bore rate on that? >> look, she has done things
4:07 pm
that are absolutely wrong and illegal no matter how you look at it. you have to say we have to test it at trial but what she has done is wrong. you look at general petraeus. i think they should leave him alone. he has had enough. now they want to demote him and take away some of his rank. i think he has had enough to be honest with you. they ought to fight isis, not general petraeus. they ought to fight china and some of these countries that are ripping us off on trade. we have plenty of fights to go around we don't have to worry about general petraeus. has paid a big leave him alone. when you lohen you look at what she has done compared to general petraeus, it's 20 times greater. it's not even a contest. now, general petraeus has suffered greatly and you know the consequences. i mean, what he has gone through isf nothing. and i say it's up to the president. it's up to the democrats. they're -- what the democrats are doing is preserving her to run for
4:08 pm
office. anybody else that did what she did would right now be in the clinker. >> donald, we didn't get to chance to talk about so i'm on this the new hampshire poll that came out. you are leading 34% and number two is ted cruz, 20 points behind you. so, anyway. next time you come back we will talk polls. donald, thank you very much. >> thank you very much, thanks, greta. >> many in the political world saying the endorsement of sarah palin will help get the vote. ralph read to the "new york times." palin's brand among evangelizes is as gold as the faucets in trump's tower. chairman of the faith and into dom coalition ralph reid goes "on the record." good evening, nice to see you. >> good to be with you, greta. >> how important is that evangelical vote in iowa and how do you know or why do you suspect is or think that governor sarah palin helps deliver it for donald trump? >> i think the answer to the
4:09 pm
first part of your question, greta, is it's critical. it's indispensable. no one has won the iowa caucuses without winning a;wj plurality of the evangelical vote. in over 30 years. it was 56% of all caucus attenders four years ago. we believe at the faith and freedom coalition, based on our grass roots efforts in the state that it will exceed that in two weeks. we think it's going to be closer to 58% to 60% of the total vote this is about arithmetic not politics. four years ago rick santorum got a third of this vote: sitting here tonight, greta, based on the most recent des moines register poll, which is really the gold standard of iowa polls, ted cruz has got the inside track with that vote with about 37%. trump is in the 20's. it's going to be interesting to see if the cage match that we're going to see in
4:10 pm
the next two weeks and palin's endorsement will make a big difference. >> if you are an evangelical in iowa and you are trying to side trump, cruz, trump, cruz, what tips you oneñx way or the other? >> well, i think it will be litigated and played out in the course of the debate. obviously you heard mr. trump talk about the issues that he is concerned about contrast with ted cruz. i think ted cruz is going to be hitting back in terms of trump's past support for democrats and those kind of things. that will all be played out. where palin can be a validating voice, particularly -- well, really for anybody, you look at her endorsements in 2010 and 12, and 14, whether it was ted cruz in texas or nikki haley in south carolina, rand paul in kentucky or marco rubio in florida, she clearly was a factor in every one of their victories. for trumpqí&ñ in particularly, she helps validate him with
4:11 pm
evangelicals and tea activist. >> is it a big blow in the evangelical world that she picked trump over cruz? >> i think it's one piece of information and one fact among many that they are going to sort through. i mean, juans take this very seriously. they have gone to events. they have heard most of these candidates. but, as i said, palin is somebody -- look, no endorsement alone is going to secure victory. these candidates are going to have to win these votes based on their own character, their own records and their own stands on the issues. but to have a good housekeeping seal of approval for somebody as highly regarded as sarah palin, you can bet your bottom dollar that every one of the candidates would rather have that than not have it. >> ralph, thank you. nice to see you. >> you bet, greta, good to be with you you. >> senator bernie sanders is from vermont but neighboring new hampshire is becoming bernie territory. a brand new cnn wmur poll of
4:12 pm
likely new hampshire democratic voters showing senator sanders with 60%. that is a whopping 27 points ahead of secretary hillary clinton. she is trailing him big time in that state. she is way down at 33%. fox news chief white house correspondent he had henry is here. he )qñ >> greta, good to he sue. look, the clinton camp's response is two fold. number one you had bill clinton her husband on the campaign trail in the granite state today basically saying look he has a home field advantage. bernie sanders is from a neighboring state. it's not a shock he is going to be doing well here. that's the expectations game. second thing they are trying to do is say look, this is an outlier poll. i think there is something to that in the sense that we haven't seen any poll with a 27 point lead for bernie sanders in any state, even in the neighboring state. the closest might have been a fox poll a couple fridays ago that had bernie sanders up about 14 points over hillary clinton. i don't think that's the point though. i think the point is poll
4:13 pm
after poll, regardless of the number in new hampshire shows that bernie sanders is beating hillary clinton, number one. number two, iowa which was once a double digit lead for hillary clinton is now a two point race according to the bloomberg des moines register poll. another factor in this cnn/wmur poll everybody talks about who is in the lead. what's the race. hillary clinton has terrible favorability issues. email, likability, honesty and trustworthy. bernie sanders in new hampshire in this poll favorability among democrats 91%. that's part of the reason why the clinton camp they don't know how to attack him. he is seen as a grandfathery figure. somebody who is open, transparent, authentic. sky high favorability ratings. and everything they throw at him it just doesn't seem to be working. it's very frustrating in the clinton camp right now. they feelbnájárá's a repeat of 2008 right now. greta. >> thank you.
4:14 pm
admitting the uphill battle. president clinton on the trail for his wife in new hampshire. >> i know we are in a hard fight here. and i know we are running against one of your neighbors. i trust you to make this decision. this would not be a close question for me. >> is the clinton campaign in panic mode? if not, should it be? the "on the record" political panel is here nina easton and from the hill bob cusack. nina, it's a little bit like -- senator bernie sanders is like that clause. he is going to give you everything. hard not to like him if you want something. >> to your question earlier, she should definitely be worried and panicked possibly. here's the thing. she conventional business come she could lose new hampshire. he is way ahead. she could possibly even lose iowa where he is gaining -- where bernie sanders is gaining on her. but then she goes into the southern states. she goes to south carolina. she goes to another state,
4:15 pm
nevada, where she is -- where she is way, way ahead and she can regain her footing. here's the thing. here this is very unconventional campaign year. this is campaign year that favors outsider and authentic speak and all the things that play in bernie sanders' favor. it's conceivable there could be a very negative wave that she is going to face, a tidal wave if she loses one or both of those states. >> bob, in 2008 not in a million years would i have thought she would lose from a very inexperienced junior senator from illinois. now she is losing to a guy who has not -- he doesn't have a huge accomplishment record in the united states on capitol hill. and he is -- and he says he is a socialist. how does this happen? >> she finished third in 2008. lost to edwards as well. the state has not been kind to her. i think that the democratic ját sanders win. >> that's what the republicans said about donald trump. it's killing them.
4:16 pm
they are very nervous about seats in correct me if i am conn the democratic side. you will hear talk of elizabeth warren and joe biden. there is no doubt about it. it's going to be panic time if she loses both those states. >> we have a poll for the viewers. viewers, here is your chance to vote at home on twitter. do you think hillary clinton's campaign is in crisis? tweet "yes" or:>". "no," using #greta. we will show you live twitter votes throughout the show. nina, bob, thank you both very much. and did the obama administration put guns in the hands of el chapo and his ruthless thugs? this is news you will not believe. plus, congressman jason chaffetz is next. also fox is tracking a brutal dangerous winter storm. at this hour it is gaining strength and sweeping across the country. this one could set records, records we do not want. it's coming for you or not? that's straight ahead.

4:20 pm
brace yourself for this particular question. did the obama administration arm mexican drug king pin el chapo? yes, i know, that's a harsh question. but the answer regret tab bably looks like yes. of course the obama
4:21 pm
administration did not intend to arm the world's worst and most dangerous drug lord who has killed and spilled poison on our streets from l.a. to boston. you tell me how did a 50 caliber gun traced back to fast and furious, the type of power weapon take down helicopters end up in el el chapo's hand? why won't the obama administration provide documents about this bochesd program. utah congressman jason chaffetz joins us. >> hi, greta. >> what do you think about this when a gun from fast and furious ends up in one of the world's most criminal hands. >> the obama administration gave the drug cartels nearly 2,000 weapons. 50 caliber. most were a.k. 47s. what did they think was going to happen when they let these guns walk? and that's why we started this investigation and why we need these documents. >> you know, it's really pretty outrageous. the documents, former attorney general eric holder held in contempt of congress for not sly supplying the
4:22 pm
documents. the obama administration is sitting on all these documents. and now weuc have this gun that we could take down a helicopter, found with a guy just picked up after escaping for the second time from prison who has poisoned so many people on the streets of the united states and killing some. so, what are you going to do about this? >> well, look, brian terry one of our border patrol agents was killed with one of these weapons. we know hundreds of mexican police have taken fire from these guns from the obama administration. there is no doubt about why the obama administration wants to put a lid on this and not allow the american people or congress to look at these documents. darrell issa led our charge. we issued a subpoena. they refused to give them to us. the administration simultaneously claimed executive privilege but said the president wasn't involved. well, show us the documents. that's why you have been in court. we won an important ruling just in the last day. but still they are probably going to appeal it we still don't have those documents in our possession burning
4:23 pm
up. they are all upset with them because they say trying to take guns away with them with the second amendment. the things that he wants to do in terms of closing the loophole. and meanwhile we find out that the obama administration is arming el chapo, not intentionally but the way they handled this thing, really i will conceived program and negligence and terrible way they handled it, now el chapo ends up with guns. >> hey, if president obama is concerned about public safety, when you have 66,000 people that are here illegally convicted of a crime, don't release them back under the public like you did. don't use fast and furious to give the drug[j cartels nearly 2,000 weapons. trying to see where they pop up. that's his idea of gun control. now he wants to take away and limit the second amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. that's unbelievable. you pull your!8l hair out with this administration and how inept they have been in covering everything up and not allowing us to get those documents. >> all right. just a short time ago, you and senator grassley sent is
4:24 pm
a letter over to the obama administration. you want the serial number from this weapon that was found on -- let me say once again it's so potent it could take down a helicopter. this -- why did you write this letter and why do you want the serial number? >> we want all the documents. but we do have a pretty good data base of serial numbers with weapons associated with fast and furious. we want them to give us all of those serial numbers so we can compare. it might be more than that. it might not. but they need to show us those serial numbers and the atf in getting those documents to share those with congress and senator grassley and i are doing that together. >> all right. i must confess in the very beginning i thought the republicans were giving the obama administration a hard time on fast and furious but now after all these years of them dragging their feet and hiding documents and not turning over documents and contempt of congress and weapon use to do kill agent terry, brian terry and now this news with el chapo is just horrifying. so if the attorney general of the united states is
4:25 pm
listening, she needs to do the right thing. just get the documents. any i. warnings congressman chaffetz, thank you, sir. >> college professor under investigation for ties to isis. "on the record" takes you to that college next. check this out. that's air force one at andrews air force base. yes, it's snowing already. dangerous winter storm is on the way. will it hit you? your fox forecast is moments away. tomfoolery? oh, we do have tom foolery, tom. staples has a price match guarantee. make low prices happen. staples make more happen. this just got interesting. why pause to take a pill? or stop to find a bathroom? is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex

4:29 pm
developing right now, kent state university professor under investigation by the fbi for alleged ties to isis. fox news reporter live at kent state. who is this professor? what is he accused of doing and what university? >> well, he has quite a history here at kent state. associate history professor at kent state university. he is a cuban born american citizens but he converted to the muslim faith in 2000 and really over the last 10 years he sure hasn't been shy about sharing some very strong beliefs about some very inflammatory issues. the question it seems for investigators tonight is whether or not there is a motive behind some of those'c beliefs and how he may have used them to influence some young minds here at kent state university. some examples. in 2002, he ruffled feathers writing a column as a tribute to a palestinian suicide bomber. 2011 he was back in the headlines after shouting death to israel during a
4:30 pm
speech by an israeli diplomat. one of the social media postings regarding the capture of usama bin laden he wrote this: there is no problem of international terrorism. there is a problem of the united states. he has done nothing illegal exercised his freedom of speech. he sure didn't want to exercise that freedom of speech when he went to his house today to try to talk to him. the federal investigation apparently has been underway the last year and a half. it came to light this week when the fbi came to campus to talk with some students and some faculty members and one of his students told us that he believes he is very intelligent. he wasn't surprised by this news giving his very public belief. he is a tenured professor, greta, and so the university isn't removing him from the classroom. is he going to be back in the classroom teaching his classes again tomorrow. university president here in kept state says that they are cooperating with federal authorities. the fbi has told them that there is no threat to campus.
4:31 pm
>> dave, thank you, and have a big believer in the first amendment. i do question the wisdom of someone hiring someone like who put that kind of stuff on facebook and for poor ohio taxpayers paying for that guy to teach there i read all the things on his facebook page. i will tell you one thing, his judgment is very suspect. anyway, is he etch tooing the students. anyway, dave, thank you. secretary of defense ash carter announcin that centers from french and other places have plans to drive out isis. how? >> to accomplish these objectives, we are as he indicated, enabling local motivated forces wherever sill has spread. as the only practical strategic approach, not only to defeating isil but also of sustaining its defeat thereafter. >> next month the 26 nations u.s. led coalition will meet
4:32 pm
in brussels. and this new -- seeing more oãisis depravity. monday sear wiped out by isis savages. it stood 1400 years before being described. isis has destroyed 100jó religious sites in syria and iraq. and former secretary of defense robert gates going after his former boss president obama. today secretary gates saying the president does not know how to take out isis. >> i think that the underestimated isis. has underestimated the degree of fear that they have been able to provoke among a lot of americans. >> congressman major in the u.s. army reserves congressman lee zeldin goes "on the record."
4:33 pm
good evening, sir. when yourer secretary of defense says you under estimate the enemy. the american people are probably deeply distress to do hear that. a lot of the american public would agree and we know enough just by watching the news as the president once declared this to be the jv team has urged strategic patience. has spoken about the need to get them more jobs. has declared isis contained. every single day whether it was foiled or actual attacks here at home, what we are seeing overseas whether it is isis or other radical terror groups. the average american public gets this is a real threat to our homeland and it's an important need for us to evolve our foreign policy. so i think the president is kind of the last one to the dance on this one. >> well, you know, i still don't understand why won't he say radical islam? who does he think is doing this stuff? >> you know, i know that this president doesn't play
4:34 pm
for the same team that i do. i don't know exactly what team it is. but you can't eliminate a threat that you are no$ willing to identify. and step number is being willing to confront the fact that we are at war with radical islamic extremist groups in iraq and in syria. but also in libya and in mali. all across africa and spreading into asia. and the longer and longer that this president lives in a state of denial as to reality. the more that isis spreads, the more of a threat it becomes. the wealthier they are. the more resources they have. the more people that they have. so, for whoever our next president is, coming in january of 2017, they will be inheriting more and more of a threat as a result of this president not being willing to identify the threat or eliminate it. >> well, you say that we are at war with them. i mean, they say they are at war with us is there any doubt that isis is at war
4:35 pm
with us. they want to hurt any civilian that gets in its way that doesn't agree. any christian, yazidi anything. anybody who gets in their way. is there any doubt they are at war with us and civilization? >> it's all different religions. all different kind of countries. they will blow up a russian bomber, an airliner. they will threaten. >> tourists on it. >> but paris, united states,. >> it's just unbelievable. you're right. they blow up a tourist on a russian plane. it's endless. but, anyway, maybe president obama will listen to his former secretary tonight, but who knows? anyway, congressman, thank you for joining us, sir. >> thank you, greta. >> and breaking right now. the taliban launching a horrific attack at a pakistani university. atrx least 21 people dead when taliban gunmen stormed the college and opened fire. grn reporter jonathan is live in pakistan.
4:36 pm
jonathan, what happened? it happened yesterday morning as university day was just beginning at the:00. four gunmen from the pakistani taliban quite simply climbed over the back wall, supposedly security had been beefed up in every school and university in this country following the even worse attack in december 2014 that your viewers might remember on a school in which 130 people were killed. none the less, these gunmen climbed in over the back wall and attacked two of the hostels where the male students lived. they went systematically room to room opening doors or trying to coax people to open doors and shooting for the head and chest and attempting to do as much damage as possible. >> and at the same time, as they are opening fire, yelling at least on one account allah allah akbar god is great as they are executing
4:37 pm
innocent college students as they are going room to room, right? >> that's correct. i talked to some of the people who survived this attack and only in pakistan would some of the students fight back. some of them had handguns there was one young man who was proclaimed a hero by some of the students involved for taking these guys on and drawing the terrorist towards him which allowed a whole group of students to escape one of these particular hostels. also, a chemicals professor also reached for his weapon and unfortunately, was killed. but he is also being termed as a hero in pakistan tonight. >> this is a terrible situation. 21 dead, pakistan university. gunmen storming in and just executing people yelling all-ñ akbar, god is good to these innocent students
4:38 pm
trying to get an education. jonathan, thank you. >> thank you. >> remember this pricey, grossly overpriced 43-million-dollar gas station that your tax dollars paid for? well now it just got worse. the obama administration has no idea how much it actually cost. that's next. plus, a massive blizzard slamming the nation. are you in the path of this dangerous storm? that's coming up. n is a new ibs-d treatment that helps relieve your diarrhea and abdominal pain symptoms. and xifaxan works differently. it's a prescription antibiotic that acts mainly in the digestive tract. do not use xifaxan if you have a history of sensitivity to rifaximin, rifamycin antibiotic agents, or any components of xifaxan. tell your doctor right away if your diarrhea worsens while taking xifaxan, as this may be a sign of a serious or even fatal condition.
4:39 pm
tell your doctor if you have liver disease or are taking other medications, because these may increase the amount of xifaxan in your body. tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are nursing. the most common side effects are nausea and an increase in liver enzymes. if you think you have ibs with diarrhea, talk to your doctor about new xifaxan.
4:40 pm
4:41 pm
4:42 pm
remember this gas station, the one in afghanistan that cost millions and millions and millions your dollars? more than it should have? how and why is government spending so out of control with no consequences for anyone? and today a senate subcommittee grilling a d.o.d. final and special inspector general for afghanistan construction. >> we had questions as a committee. i push to have this hearing and we didn't get the new numbers on the gas station until even though you had the draft report in september. you can address that we shouldn't be concerned that
4:43 pm
somehow this is being covered up? >> we're not trying to hide anything. it's very useful to find out what happened. it's going to be hard for us to create this history with all the task force employees gone except for a handful of people who might still be in the department. >> senator kdáqg÷ ayotte is here to go "on the record": good evening. >> goodx evening, greta. >> how much did this gas station cost. >> this is the big issue, the dod can't say how much the gas station cost but the special inspector general found that the gas station cost $43 million. the bigger issue is you put that $43 million for the gas station, your average afghan what it cost to convert if they have an automobile is -- their salary for the entire year to the type of gas compressed natural gas this station would serve. this is part of a bigger task force where

$800 million was this hearing shockinga, what came out and what little accountability we have. >> do we know who okayed the payment? >> well, i can assure you that there was the person charged with the task force at the time they reported to the dod. that answer was not given today. >> i want to know who is doing this? i meaning, for starters. if we -- if haiti had $43 million for a gas station and we heard that they couldn't account for it, we would all say that's incredible. what corruption? here in the united states we have $43 million spent on something we can't track down. why isn't someone screaming corruption and why isn't the attorney general convening a criminal investigation. >> it's not just the 43 million. >> i know that. >> this is 7,800,000,000. $150 million for villas that were used apparently for five to ten people, fancy villas in afghanistan. >> 150 million?
4:45 pm

4:46 pm
>> right. >> the attorney general of the united states should be convenes ing a grand jury and say who wrote the check and who okayed it. >> i agree. one of the things the sigar are the inspector general they have criminal investigations pending here. part of the problem is you heard the answer of dod basically well, we can't account for the records we don't know what happened. that's outrageous. >> who okayed the check for about 4 million dollars for a gas station? put the name and picture up on the screen. >> we will get it. this is not the end of this. we are going to go after this. >> the tax papers are lucky a former state attorney general is on this. >> this is just outrageous. >> senator, thank you. >> thanks, greta. >> tomorrow'8wp the inspector general will be here and senator, thank you again. and tonight a dangerous winter storm on the move. but sparing no one in its path. what you need to know isgh b next. without raising blood pressure. so look for powerful cold medicine with a heart.
